I was trying to use force:navigateToComponent and Lightning:Navigation for navigating to a new component. Both seems to not work in communities. Is there any work around?

1 Answer 1


In communities, navigateToComponent or Lightning:navigation will not work, they are not supported there:

This event is handled by the one.app container. It’s supported in Lightning Experience and the Salesforce app.

You will have to use force:navigateToURL if the components are in other community pages, otherwise, you will have to change your logic in your component to display the appropriate component based on your criteria "manually" (not with navigation events)
